That looks better, now I don't know about that simple face, the horn and teeth seem fine but that eye gives it the look of a friendly giant. (Exept to the goblins it's been eating.)

So, this ready? I vote for tank, goblin user, because it's stats are ready and balanced. Honestly, orcs don't need another healer because two are fine especially with the troll shaman.

Umm, Makazuwru, looking at the eat goblin ability now coincided with goblin spikers cheap cost of goblins cheap cost in general wouldn't it be better to lower it from 50% to maybe 20%?

For me, cyclops are just one eyed ogre/troll in general, so i think they should have similar stats, but whatever...

I think such unit would be easily unused since you can have ettins that are just a bit weaker, but they can join the field faster, can be almost insta healed from death and deal a big dmg aswell... I would not lose 3 turns (compared to ettin) to make such unit with these current stats...

I would reduce health, cost and spell resist to 40%, btw the rest is ok.

Maybe give mountain walk one, lower eat goblin to 20%, but other then that I can see this unit getting used, it's a volcano only unit were ettins are able to be built in monster caves. To me it would be worth getting despite the setbacks. It's kinda like choosing between a orc warrior and armoured orc warrior. The second has higher cost with slightly better stats while the lower is cheaper and faster to get.

This what i have in mind.
The cost is too high.
Training ettins is still better (same damage output and can be healed without a sacrifice, powerange 1 bur range 2)

More hp but no regeneration is a too strong downside

Not being able to train it at the monster cave will make it unusable in certain maps and will penalize its use (probably better to go olog)

The throw goblin mechanic can't be done so you will end up throwing anything and anyway is not a great ability.

Orc have many heavy hitters. I believe we can do something more original than "me big giant, eat goblins" 😁.

Anyway I like both designs. With some improvements we might use both.

Well if that mechanic isn't in then Here's my new suggestions 8-) gives
Keep the way abilities 50% heal and just let it eat anything.
Raise rng to 2.
Give mountain walk 1-2.
Allow it to throw any unit with same dmg as unit has with health.
Keep cost.
Maybe make it affected by allied spells since it being able to hit its own units is a downside enough.

Hmm, that Shepard ideas growing on me, but we might try and add a few other things too. With the addition of putting Ettins, and giant marksmen in the final giants upgrade we could add this in their as well.
Then that tier unlocks:
Giant Marksmen
Ettin
Cyclops
Olog hai upgrades

Alright, how's this?
Cyclops:
Image
Cost:11
Trained: Volcano
Requires giant upgrade tier 2
Hp:150
Atk:40
Aoe:2 hits allies as well.
Rng:1
Sight:9
Spd:3, mnt:1, water:1
Arm:2
P.arm:2
Res:100%
Abilities:
Eat unit: sacrifice a unit and heal this unit for the sacrificed units hp amount.
Throw unit: basically same as the giant zombies one.
Enrage - same as ghost krakens.

Summon highland sheep - research:6, cool:0, rng:1

Highland sheep:
Desc: A highland sheep that cyclopses Shepard.

Is effected by the Same things olog hai are. Except potions.

Same bonuses, same mostly everything.
This seems a bit more worth the 11 turns.

Uhm about that sheep summon. What point of researching for summoning 5 hp 2 speed unit?
I don't like enrage ability for it.
It must be brutal and deadly, capable of hitting your own units as well.

That's why I said it was pretty much the same.

Sheep, if you want we could just put it as normal summon. It could have a gentle (ish) side and they would be more unique. Basically bringing the Shepard idea and our original back together.

Remember, what we need is to make it worth the cost and make it more worth getting over just a simple ettin.

So far I've noticed we have 100% resistance which more then any of the orcs resistances. (Its the highest there is.) We make it cross mountains and it becomes even better, but I lowered the speed to compensate.

@Savra @LordOfAles I was thinking that we might make 2 different units.

I guess that the simpler might fit the sheperd/healer while the other looks more aggressive.

They both need work but they are a good start.

Also Savra image might fit for an ogre too (and it would be perfect as a savage hitter).

I take it the other ones will be in a new topic or this going to be changed to compensate all 3? I presume my first guess was right and that you might be waiting till you get the other stuff in till we move forward with this?
